Ukraine-Russian marriage on Mexican border

Semen Bobrovsky, a Russian citizen, lived in Ukraine. While living there, he met Daria Sakhnyuk, a citizen of Ukraine. At one point, a love affair developed between the two of them. They wanted to have a formal wedding in the capital, Kiev. But the war situation became an obstacle. Sakhniuk and Bobrovsky fell into uncertainty about marriage after the start of the Russian campaign in Ukraine. In this situation they migrated to Mexico. The purpose was to cross the border into Mexico and enter the United States.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

According to the BBC, they are also in danger due to the immigration rules of the United States. But this tragedy did not stop them from getting married. After much deliberation, Sakhniuk and Bobrovsky finally got married last Wednesday in a small ceremony in the Mexican border town of Tijuana.

In an interview with TV network Telemund, Sakhniuk said, “I am happy to meet some wonderful people. These people helped us get married in Tijuana, Mexico. ‘

According to a Reuters report, Sakhniuk’s 28th birthday was celebrated with the beat of Mariachi Band after the wedding ceremony was over. The traditional Mexican Taquiza party was also held there.

A statement from the Tijuana Municipal Council said Sakhniuk and Bobrovsky arrived in Mexico two weeks ago as refugees seeking to enter the United States. Although Sakhniuk could apply for immigration to the United States, Bobrovsky did not have that opportunity. Only Ukrainian citizens fleeing the war can apply for immigration to the United States.

But now Sakhniuk and Bobrowski are married. The newlyweds hope to be allowed to move to the United States and be resettled in New York.
